Artist Note: Our Lady of Sorrow is inspired by the Seven Sorrows of Mary and the icon images of the swords in her heart. However, this painting integrates a larger sacred feminine theme inspired by more ancient stories of The Decent of Innanna and Persephone and Demeter. Many stories tell of a woman of deep compassion born to witness the sorrow and suffering of the world and to minister to those in need. It is a female "hero's journey" and is about hope and love eternal.
